    Chris Wilson’s return to the Las Vegas Train Robbers paid quick dividends Saturday night in Alamogordo.

    Wilson hit 3 for 5, including one home run, with two runs batted in, and Ted LeMasters also homered for Las Vegas in a 9-6 victory at White Sands.

    Earlier this season, Wilson became the first Train Robber to earn a promotion to a higher pro league, the Frontier, and the Normal (Ill.) Cornbelters.

    John Hotta and Andrew Lopez joined Wilson as batters with three hits for Vegas. LeMasters notched three RBI.

    This time, Crespin defeated Garcia in a six-round unanimous decision, winning 60-54 on one judge’s scorecard and 59-55 according to the other two.

  • True loyalty rare

    Loyalty? Hmmm! Is there such a thing as loyalty in professional sports today? But what is loyalty then as compared to now? Let’s examine this thought by discussing the then and now.

    Back THEN, shall we say in the ‘50s to ’90s, loyalty meant a person who played with the same team throughout his or her career. NOW loyalty has a different term, meaning money or a person who is loyal to the team he or she is with today, gone tomorrow. Loyalty also rears its head in other ways, as we will examine.
